Deltron 3030 is composed of a trinity of alt-rap all-stars: Master lyricist Del The Funky Homosapien, virtuoso turntablist DJ Kid Koala and superproducer Dan “The Automator.” Pitchfork called their debut album, "Nakamura" an “exciting” reimagining of “the future from the bottom up." Now, over a decade later, they’re finally releasing the long-awaited followup to their debut — an album titled Deltron 3030: Event II.
Cody's a wide-eyed, intense soul brother in a crazy-fly get-up singing about bedraggled love in the land of Lost Angeles. He's worked with The Roots to win a Shortlist Music Prize and be nominated for two VMAs, and his performance in Dave Chappelle's Block party only added to his fame. "Landing on a Hundred," Cody's newest release, is his second full length album.

English 2 tone ska legends. "Gangsters", "A Message to You, Rudy", "Do the Dog"... to some these are just songs, to others these were a lightning bolt to their teenage brains... a call to arms... a call to action... a call to get out on the dance floor. If you don't dance to this... you don't dance.
Ska ska ska... Is this the 4th wave? 5th wave? It may be the best wave with LA ska punk band, who have backed everyone from Jimmy Cliff to Rancid and have just released their second album. Undeniably fun and urgent in message. And backing their modernized 2-Tone-tinged, guitar-fueled, melody-heavy sound are lyrics that confront everything from social control and self-empowerment to domestic violence and the media circus surrounding the next presidential election.
Yes, Kimya Dawson from The Moldy Peaches and from the Juno soundtrack. You don't want to miss Kimya's incredible, mind-tasticly amazing, funny and unique kids music! This album made me want to have five more babies so I could keep listening to it over and over and over.
